Outrageous Fortune star Robyn Malcolm has turned to Facebook in a plea for fans to carefully consider National's environment policy before casting their ballots on November 26.
Malcolm, who passionately MC'ed the Green Party's election campaign launch on the weekend, told her followers she tries to keep her political views "reasonably low key" on the page, however National's environment policy had forced her to voice her concerns.
Malcolm said National's environment policy showed the party had no interest in innovative clean technology, implementing policy to slow down global warming or cleaning up New Zealand's environment "before it is seriously too late".
"The problem is, that to really start to attack these issues requires some tough decision making, potential backlash from certain business sectors and courageous new precedents set," she wrote.
"I want a govt with the guts to do this so that we can be a leader again on the world stage, not a fearful little follower dragging our heels on these issues.
"Please vote at this election and think carefully when you do.
"We live in a democracy, we don't all share the same views, but one thing is for sure our environment needs our active protection what ever our government.
"No environment. No economy."
Malcolm has not shied away from speaking her mind in the past, publicly opposing National's proposed mining of conservation lands and fronting climate change campaigns.
At the Green Party campaign launch the acclaimed actress said National had demonstrated "a disregard for the 200,000 children living below the international poverty line", a "clear lack of understanding on how to support children's education", and a "dispassionate and punitive approach to those in our prisons".
"We have a leader who seems to be more interested in talking about his cats on the radio, being seen at the rugby and getting on the cover of the Women's Weekly.
"I thought that was my job."
